Hello from Belgium, I just bought a wetbike who had been forgotten for a bunch of years in an old barn, I'm quite excited about this new toy which I had never seen in real before, it seems in good shape considering his young 38 years but I don't know where I'm heading with this project... I haven't got the chance to spend much time on it so far, just cleaned it up and had an overall look I already noticed a few things that bother me a little like a crack on the rear ski, and the spark plugs were off the engine and it is stuck i don't know if it's due to it's long long rest or if it's seazed up! I won't be able to work on it right away but I really want to fix this piece of museum and take it out for a ride. I have been watching all the videos I could find to learn as much as could but I'm probably gonna need a little help to bring this thing back to life. All advices are welcome.

Welcome to the forum. I don't know if any parts are available over there but we still have plenty here. As you get started fixing things just ask and we will try to help. Can you post a pic of the Wetbike and powerhead?
